Spiderwood SS (0-20cm)
Spiderwood (also called Redmoor Wood) is perhaps the most popular type of wood for the aquarium. This Azalea root wood is called Spiderwood, thanks to the many branches that are reminiscent of the resemblance to spiders.
Wood normally floats, but the big advantage of this wood is that it sinks in the aquarium after some time. Under water Spiderwood stays good for a very long time and gives little to no substances to the aquarium. Mosses, Java ferns and Anubias can be attached to the serpentine branches for added decorative value. The many twisted branches provide nice hiding places for your fish. All in all, a hardscape using Spiderwood gives a decorative, natural atmosphere in the aquarium!

Spiderwood user manual
Before use in the aquarium, the rootwood must be pre-soaked long enough to ensure that the wood does not float to the top. Soaking or boiling the wood in warm water accelerates this process and kills organisms present. Depending on the thickness of the wood, it takes 1-2 days, but can sometimes take weeks. OUR TIP: To prevent the wood from floating, it can be weighted by attaching a stone with a Tie-warp to it. It is completely normal for Spiderwood to produce a white slimy coating in the first period. This is a type of fungus and will go away on its own and is harmless. In the first weeks the wood turns a little red, but over time the wood turns brown to dark brown. Because this is a natural product, it can release substances into the aquarium. Use is at your own risk.
